Laura Sheehan, Director, Owner & Teacher-

I look forward to being part of your child’s growth, learning and adventures here at Stay & Play.

I graduated from UNH with a Bachelor’s Degree in Family and Child Studies.  I have over 20 years of experience working with children and families.  My experience includes working with toddlers, preschoolers, and school age children in New Hampshire and Virginia.

I currently live in Durham with my husband, Jay and dog, Sookie.  When I am not at Stay & Play I enjoy sailing, reading, and cooking a variety of meals.

Lindsay Chamberlain, Teacher-

Working with children is my passion and something I highly enjoy. Watching them learn and grow is rewarding. I look forward to meeting and working with your children.

I have had a lot of experience with children. I took early childhood courses in high school, worked at a preschool as a teachers aid, and I was a nanny for 2 years.

In my free time I enjoy spending time with my family and fiancé, and my dog Bella, along with my rabbit Camo. I enjoy four wheeling, fishing, playing volleyball, and being outdoors.

Erin Lee, Teacher-

As a child, I always looked up to my teachers as role models and knew that one day I wanted to be just like them. I am so excited to be able to follow that dream and give back to children the gift of education.

I graduated from UNH with Bachelor’s Degree in English Teaching and a specialization in teaching English as a second language. I have taught high school and college students in a classroom setting, and have worked closely with toddlers over my six years of being a camp counselor in both Massachusetts and New Hampshire. I am currently pursing professional development in Early Childhood Education, and can’t wait to help your child grow at Stay and Play.

In addition to my strong love for teaching, I spend time performing in local theatre productions, experimenting with new recipes in my kitchen, and playing board games.
